Local channels

Why do we need to keep having changing our local channels, we are living in a RV and moving around, so we are in and out of different locals. All we want is to receive the networks, ABC,NBC,CBS,FOX AND CW, we don’t care what city they are from, just want to get them all the time no matter where we are. We are mostly in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona and next year we will be traveling in Utah. Can we not do something to keep the networks?

Re: Local channels

You need the RV Travelers Package. Then you'll get the nationwide network channels. 




Also, note that if you still have older standard definition (SD) equipment, you must swap that equipment for newer HD (MPEG4) capable dish and receivers. SD/MPEG2 transmissions started to be discontinued this month.

Re: Local channels

We have the same problem with our motorhome. Back home in ND notified ATT and they can’t seem to get our address right so NO local channels for the last month! Spent 12 hours on the phone with them.
